Mumbai: Neeman's, an innovative footwear brand that uses natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre has roped in Bhumi Pednekar, Mandira Bedi, and Samantha Prabhu for its latest campaign.
The campaign announces the launch of its ReLive Knits, a shoe made with 100 per cent recycled PET Bottles. The digital film featuring the three actresses highlights the brand’s ethos and its latest collection that boasts comfort, sustainability, technological innovation, and superior design.
According to the company, Pednekar was an ideal fit for the campaign as she is a renowned climate warrior and an advocate of sustainable living. “She exemplifies breaking of boundaries, and Neeman's, with the newest collection of sneakers and slip-on made with 100 per cent recycled PET Bottles has done the same,” it said.
"The truly spirited actress, anchor, designer, and fitness enthusiast Mandira Bedi on the other hand was a suitable pick for ReLive Kits as she is a true embodiment of donning many hats and, thus, perfectly channels Neeman's vision of crafting versatile footgear for anytime wear. Actress Samantha Prabhu too perfectly reflects Neeman’s values of shattering stereotypes and challenging the status quo, with one-of-a-kind choices that make her stand apart," said the company.
According to Neeman's, the new line of shoes actively reduce carbon footprints and build towards a better tomorrow. In ReLive Knits, the other materials used include bamboo insoles, castor bean oil, natural and recycled rubber.
“With this planet-friendly collection, we have taken another significant step towards creating footwear that cares for the environment without compromising comfort and style,” said Neeman’s founder Taran Chhabra. "As per the research by Quantis, a sustainability consulting group, sneaker production accounts for 1.4 per cent of the global greenhouse gas emissions. In stark contrast, each pair of the ReLive Knits is made with eight PET bottles, and so far, we have recycled more than one million plastic bottles for this new sustainable collection. We are determined to change how Indians wear shoes, one step at a time."
